Overview

A gastrointestinal or GI series is an X-ray exam of the small intestine subsequent to barium ingestion. On upper GI series, the Meckel's diverticulum appears as a smooth, white, globular mass located 50 cm proximal to the ileocecal valve and arising from the antimesenteric border of the ileum.
